Looking up


Michaelangelo’s Slaves – Hôtel de Police Paris XIIème

No one can dispute how beautiful and intriguing a city Paris is.  From its magnificent vistas to its lush and lovely parks and gardens, it offers many sites to behold.  But as we walk down its streets, “oohing and ahhing” at the monument in the distance, we often fail to see what’s just over (as opposed to under) our noses!  If we’d take the time to look up as we stroll, we’d find surprise after wonderful surprise waiting to add to our enchantment!
